“As almost any hospital or healthcare organization can attest to, recruiting in the healthcare industry today is extremely difficult,” said Janet Elkin. “Yet, at the same time, being fully staffed is a key part of delivering quality patient care. Our session is designed to help recruiters better understand their role in the process and provide a practical guide to future success.”

The Health Care Recruitment Conference is the single most important event targeted specifically to health care recruitment professionals. It delivers an excellent educational agenda combined with numerous networking opportunities for attendees. Founded in 1975, NAHCR is a professional health care organization dedicated to the professional growth and advancement of healthcare recruiters within a dynamic health care environment.

“We’re very excited to be part of this conference and to have the opportunity to share with attendees the insights and experiences we’ve gathered throughout our careers,” said Mary Dougherty. “Recruiters play such an important role in an organization’s hiring success. They serve as the face of a facility, and the first exposure a candidate has to the organization’s culture and personality.”

The 45th Health Care Recruitment Conference will be held July 30 – August 2, at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel.
